CLEVELAND, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL), a premier global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, today announced that it has received the Supplier Excellence Award from CONMED® Corporation's CONMED Linvatec Arthroscopy Unit.

CONMED is a global healthcare leader in the fields of arthroscopy and powered surgical instruments, and offers forward-looking technology for a growing range of minimally invasive and orthopedic surgery procedures.

The award recognizes PolyOne's Color and Additives business for ongoing service excellence at CONMED Linvatec in Largo, Florida.

Recognition such as this underscores PolyOne's customer first commitment by providing prompt service at the highest level in areas such as technical assistance, product selection, and just-in-time delivery.
